Lead-up to Public Meeting:

Thought Leap 7

It’s not too late for life.  And its flourishing depends on democracy attuned to all we now know of our nature and to what history teaches:  that centralized power cannot lead to the sustained good of the whole.  Plus, today’s crises are so interrelated, vast in scope, and complex that solutions depend on tapping the direct experience, common sense, and passion of people most affected.  And that’s billions of us!  With the buy-in that comes with having a real voice, most of us want to contribute to solutions that turn our planet toward life.  So the “mother of all issues” is removing the power of concentrated wealth from public decision making and infusing citizens’ voices instead.  It’s beginning in surprising places.
